(61) The Trouble with Happiness

Rohan Quine - New York - The Trouble with Happiness(61) The Trouble with Happiness. As art gallery-goer Luke, in the feature film The Trouble with Happiness directed by Lynn Powers.

This is me as an excitable little art-fancier at a gallery opening, shot from the POV of a never-depicted but evidently saucy artwork. I think this was somewhere in Nolita, at one end of a loose swathe of small commercial art galleries that people like Luke would flit along in the first half of a Friday evening, flouncing their way through a free glass of questionable wine at each of 10 different gallery openings across Downtown Manhattan, until they were plastered enough to maintain incisive levels of Socratic conversation throughout the second half of their Friday evening, wherever that might end up occurring.
